MUMBAI: The small screen has lost another actor to Bollywood. Ashish Choudhary, who has acted in serials such as Hum Pardesi Ho Gaye(Sony TV) and Wajood (Star Plus) has bid adieu to the TV screen.
Choudhary has bagged a role in producer-director Harry Baweja's Qayamat - City Under Threat. Moon Moon Sen's daughter Riya Sen stars opposite him. The co-stars include big guns such as Ajay Devgan, Suniel Shetty, Aayub Khan, Sanjay Kapoor, Arbaaz Khan, Chunky Pandey and a host of other heroines. Won't he get lost?
Choudhary justifies: "Well, I have made my transition and there is no turning back. I have refused all the TV serials offered to me. I have no regrets about acting in serials because they gave me acclaim and elevated me to where I am now. But, TV takes too much time."
Choudhary has three films on hand, including a commercial English film made by Delhi based director duo Siddharth-Ankhush. The film is produced by Quartet Films, in which Javed Jaffery and Rajan Shah (Bharat Shah's son) have stakes.
What about modeling? "I hope my films become blockbusters and I get endorsement offers instead of modeling assignments," Choudhary quips.
Speaking to indiantelevision.com, director Baweja says: "I needed a fresh face and Choudhary showed a lot of promise in the screen tests. I must say that he has delivered."
The small screen's loss is the big screen's gain.
